    Hello everybody! o/


    I'm trying to figure out a way to create a column with the value of the item considering its "area" (the image can explain what this 'area' means for), from a pivot table, in this format:


    The column; What it REALLY means (the order)
    1.1.1 - 1st area; 1st state of 1st area; 1st unitsSold of 1st state of 1st area
    1.1.2 - 1st area; 1st state of 1st area; 2nd unitsSold of 1st state of 1st area
    1.2.1 - 1st area; 2nd state of 1st area; 1st unitsSold of 2nd state of 1st area
    1.3.1 - 1st area; 3rd state of 1st area; 1st unitsSold of 3rd state of 1st area
    1.3.2 - 1st area; 3rd state of 1st area; 2nd unitsSold of 3rd state of 1st area
    1.3.3 - 1st area; 3rd state of 1st area; 3rd unitsSold of 3rd state of 1st area
    1.3.4 - 1st area; 3rd state of 1st area; 4th unitsSold of 3rd state of 1st area
    2.1.1 - 2nd area; 1st state of 2nd area; 1st unitsSold of 1st state of 2nd area
    2.2.1 - 2nd area; 2nd state of 2nd area; 1st unitsSold of 2nd state of 2nd area
    2.2.2 - 2nd area; 2nd state of 2nd area; 2nd unitsSold of 2nd state of 2nd area
    3.1.1 - 3rd area; 1st state of 3rd area; 1st unitsSold of 1st state of 3rd area
    3.1.2 - 3rd area; 1st state of 3rd area; 2nd unitsSold of 1st state of 3rd area
    3.2.1 - 3rd area; 2nd state of 3rd area; 1st unitsSold of 2nd state of 3rd area


    Some of you have already stuck with something like this?

    I have already tried a lot o COUNTIF like, but none of them solved; some got really close!


    Tks!

    Perhaps post a sample sheet, not a picture.

    Here is the spreadsheet with the example I need.

    I think its more clear now...

    Please explain in words how you get from 'What I have' to 'What I need', as it is beyond my Ken.

    I finally got the answer in another forum,

    You can see the formulas on the sheet below (its not so complicated by the way)

    it follows on attachments solution.xlsx

    Thanks Pecoflyer , Thanks Bob Phillips !

    So you were posting elsewhere as well, glad we didn't waste time trying to solve it for you.

    As for the solution, the data doesn't look anything like what you posted here, no wonder we didn't understand. I can't believe they used SUM(G1,1)!

  7. #7
    Yes!

    They used a simple formula, understood what I told, and here is the solution!

    Isn't it wonderful?

    LOL I didn't expected you would take it personal. I believe the information has to be spread!

    Anyway, thanks a lot!

    I take it personally that you cross-post and don't tell us so that we waste time trying to help when I wouldn't have bothered if I had known you were cross-posting. Being free does not give you the right to abuse.

    Bob,


    I'm really sorry for that, maybe I'm new here and made a mistake. My intention was to reach as many people as possible and share the solution (as I did here) to everyone.

    If I 'cross-posting' again I'll make it noticed.


    =D

    Is there a way to put "[SOLVED]" in this thread?

    Usually the foruns tools offers it at the "Thread Tools" up there button..... This forum seems to not have it....
